While the Pacific may be off to an early start, there are no storms currently brewing in the Atlantic. However, the Atlantic hurricane season forecast from Colorado State University does predict an active season ahead. Heading into the heart of the Atlantic hurricane season, warm ocean surface temperatures in the Atlantic and favorable atmospheric conditions could allow for a busy season.
